Special Features

The first feature to discuss is the Wild symbol and this is represented by a golden Playboy cufflink. Like most Wild symbols, the main function of this symbol is to substitute for all other symbols except the Scatter to help form winning combinations on the reels.

This slot features Jumbo Blocks which are huge symbols that cover a 4x6 space and spin on reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. These blocks are represented by 4 different playmates e.g. Carly is the Blue Playboy, Hiromi is Red, Stephanie is Orange, and Gia is Purple. If you manage to land a full Jumbo Block then you will be awarded one of the following features:

  • Multiplier: up to 5X on any wins created
  • Credit Prize: instant cash prize of up to 30X your total bet
  • Respins: the Jumbo Symbol expands to 4x10 and spins 4 times with Sticky Wilds on reels 1 and 6
The Wheel Bonus feature is triggered when you land 3 or more Scatters on the reels. The Scatter symbol is depicted by the Playboy logo with a red background. In this feature, you will get to spin a Wheel and be awarded one of the following features:
  • Match Bonus: pick cards to find matching pairs to win cash prizes and increase a multiplier value with each successful pick
  • Free Spins: awards 10 Free Spins with a 4x6 Jumbo Block present on each spin
  • Cash Prize: awards a cash prize up to 100X your initial wager

Theme and Graphics

Playboy Gold features a classy presentation full of stylish gold and black designs with spotlights hovering in the background evoking a real Hollywood feel to the game. The slot is hosted by two beautiful playmates who are on opposite side of the reels and transform into a range of different images the more you play. Symbols are bright and colourful and consist of a bunch of Playmates, Playboy Chips, Cufflinks, and the standard Heart/Diamond/Spade/Club icons. The animations are fantastic as symbols dazzle brightly when part of a winning combination on the reels and it’s particularly pleasing when a big Jumbo Block symbol appears fully on the reels to trigger one of the bonus features.

The music is lounge-style with lots of melodic piano beats and fits in perfectly with the classy theme of the game.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game features 100 paylines, a good RTP of 96.01%, and a fine jackpot prize of 100,000 coins.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.

Our Verdict on Playboy Gold

This game is made by leading software provider Microgaming and I am happy to report that it’s a more than worthy sequel to the much-loved Playboy slot. This time around, the graphics are far more realistic and the slot is packed with a whole host of amazing bonus features to keep players spinning for countless hours. The most lucrative feature in the game is without a doubt the Respins feature as you have the opportunity to score some huge wins with Sticky Wilds present on reels 1 and 6 and a gigantic 4x10 Jumbo Block on top of that! I found this game to be of low to medium variance so thankfully it won’t take you too long to land a nice cash payout. For a slot with a similar theme, check Playboy.

Let the playmates lead you to a big win when you play Playboy Gold!
